Thank god it’s Fridaaay! Friday, the happiest day of the week- well, at least for me. However, now that it’s the summer time everyday is like Friday. Oh those nonchalant warm breezy days, when the sun rays shine longer than the lights of the moon… I hope they would last forever. Overhearing the majority moan and groan about the fact that those golden days will soon be over makes me realize how close I am to sitting back at my desk in September with a pile of work laid in front of me. But why is it easier for us to close our eyes in front of the present, missing out the bright side of our lives in a blink? It’s only July. So many more things to come, to look forward to. So many more memories to be made. Why can’t we take a sip from the glass that is half full- and not empty. Our society prefers to dramatize about our everyday doings, turning the tinniest obstacles into severe complications and dilemmas which indeed prevent us from living how we would have desired to instead. We ignore the things that actually matter, the things that we want. After building mountains of worries, doubts and fears of things that ‘could’ happen we immediately decide to throw away our dreams. Then what’s the point of it all? Ask yourself.
And back to the bright side 🙂 We might not have cookies, but the weekend is sure to come. So enjoy the rest of your awesome Friday!

Aaand I’m back to my little writing journal! Ironically, today happens to be Bleu de Blonde’s one year anniversary! Crazy, right?! It’s been a year I have been bothering you guys with my bizarre posts, and having to think that last year the same person sat behind this very computer, typing up her idea on a virtual screen is absolutely unbelievable. A year filled with a whole load of travelling to the most incredible places I have visited; Russia, America, Greece, Andorra, France, Spain and Italy- those will be the memories I will never forget. Hopefully, this year will be just as great with much more to experience and explore.
As to my last post, 5 months and counting, I would like to share with you my recent discovery of the country that we should all praise for the existence of pizza, pasta and gelato ♥ Italy and its capital Rome- the home to the Vatican as well as landmark art and ancient ruins. Its every street spirited with the energy of a once most powerful empire, every house a well-known museum or a remarkable piece of art, and every individual a fashion icon. Personally, I was swayed by the power of gelato. Never thought ice-cream could taste so good! A recommendation I should make would be, San Crispino on the street of Trevi (pretty close to the fountain of Trevi), the place offers tons of flavours to choose from starting from the basics (which are not any less gorgeously delicious) to the very unusual ones like pizza and liquorice! Another place to try out would be Hedera, which is 5min walk from the Vatican City, selling its finest gelato in cannoli cones and of course the Magnum Pleasure Store placed in the centre of Rome. Seems like a perfect place for me, combing delish food and the beauty of the contrast in landscapes…

Feels good to be back 🙂

Hola! Como estas? (my spanish skills are boss and these are the only 2 phrases I know). I have been away for a while and I’m super excited to tell you all about my winter holidays at Andorra. For those who don’t know, which is actually the majority of people who have been curious about my vacation, Andorra is the smallest country in Europe that lies between France and Spain. It is known for its unbelievably grand skiing resort at the Pyrenees that is really popular with the Spanish, the French, the Russians and the locals of course. The city itself is really beautiful and charming. The sunrise over the horizon of the slopes can be seen even from the centre of town, Andorra La Vella. The streets are small and narrow and the architecture is very vintage, in contrast to the vast assortment of shopping you can do during your stay! However, I personally cherished the pleasure of resting in one of the creperies or relishing delicious lunch at an old-fashioned pizzeria after a tiring day of winter sport activity.
Our morning routine begun by reaching Encamp (the transportation station to Grandvalira, the central range of the resort) from where we took the ski lift to our snowy adventure. The path to the slope is stunning. Travelling 100 meters above the ground, you can witness snow trails of forest inhabitants or even see a rabbit. Floating around in one those cabins during these 5 days of skiing, I realized how lucky I am to travel around the world to such sensational places like Andorra. All you need in life to lift your spirit is to take a moment and gaze at the beauty of nature- and I did, which really inspired me. This inspiration encouraged my sisters and I to create a Youtube Channel, Three Dimensional, where we will introduce our everyday lives and travelling through the use of videos. Our first video has been dedicated to our time spent at the mountains during this Christmas break. To find the video on Youtube search for “Andorra Travels”, hope you will enjoy it. More vlogs are yet to come! 🙂
Have a wonderful weekend ♥
